As to the outbound traffic, I won't look at your picture, but today's worms do that as they try to infect other machines. Same story for email infections and of course P2P programs. What I do next is to track down which machines are doing this. If a virus/worm/trojan/spyware is found it is removed. If P2P is found, then we disable that and leave a copy of the company policy on the user's screen.
It's rarely an issue since we block all but authorised ports. Just email, ftp and http.

I need some techie help with analyzing this MRTG log, my questions are:
1. The outgoing traffic from our LAN seems to be much more than the incoming ? is this normal?
2. With the increased level towards the end of the graph, do you suggest I get more bandwidth, if so, how much more do you suggest?
Any other advice would be really appreciated.
